The human race is in trouble. After narrowly claiming victory in the first invasion, an assault by advanced militaristic aliens armed with light speed capable spacecraft is a continuing threat. Even so, Chrysalis is in danger, and Whatsit is determined to rescue his fellow Chrysallamans. It's a task he knows he cannot accomplish without the help of his human brethren. With the threat of future attacks looming, the humans will have to decide whether it's best to go on the defensive at home on Earth or take the fight to its source and save the Chrysallaman race.

.Dawn Of Chrysalis Book 2
"Humans don't easily accept authority."
Continuing the story of an attempted earth invasion - and the alien in the sombrero hat.
Following the defeat of the military attack of earth by Chrystonians, , a previously undefeated race of superior, telepathic lizard like aliens - the problem remains of what to do with the settlers, still in stasis on the ships in nearby space. The decision to try to slowly absorb them into the population is a brave one and a selection of sleepers, mostly scientists, are chosen to be the first to be woken and invited to stay, if the can be persuaded that the earthlings are not inferior animals but the measure of, or superior to themselves. Things seem to be going quite well, until the unexpected arrival of their Emperor is announced. He had escaped an invasion of his own planet, leaving his people to the aliens arriving there ...
And Whotsit might just have found a girlfriend!
This book is great fun as the reader is reunited with some of the characters from book one.
Mr.McKenzie, the easy going, down to earth engineer, is still in a love hate relationship with the egotistical, opinionated scientist, but together they get the science done. Filled with humour, quirky personalities, bombastic aliens, imaginative science and battles for survival, and with just a hint of political incorrectness, this is a light, enjoyable listen. John Pirhalla is again narrating, his easy on the ear voice this time seemingly more involved in the action rather than recording it as if from a news reporting delivery. His reading is well paced with nicely nuanced phrasing and intonation, helping to bring the story to life.
Perhaps not as action packed or gripping as some military science fiction, Dawn of Chrysalis is certainly still an attention holder, more in a comic book style, with clever ideas and some mind bending tools of domination. Good fun.
